15 Changing the EndingI would not change the ending of Percy Jackson and the Olympians.This is because I think it leaves you hanging and anxious for the next book.Also, it gives you hope that there is a way to defeat Kronos.
16 The Message There were several messages that I got out of this book: Courage- even though Percy was afraid to do things like open Kronos’s coffin, he did because he knew it was important.Respect Nature- Pan told Percy and his friends that it was very important to preserve the wild.Never Give Up!- Even when Percy wanted to stop trying, he never gave up.
17 RecommendationsI would definitely recommend this book to someone because:It is hilarious!It is packed with action!Overall, it is lighthearted.There is mystery, cliffhangers, and lots of excitement.
